Part V: MIDI Sequencing > Recording MIDI

Chapter 16. Recording MIDI

Before Pro Tools 5, working with MIDI in Pro Tools simply did not happen. If a project demanded basic sequencing, a keyboard workstation or external hardware sequencer might get the job done. For more advanced integrated audio and MIDI, however, you had only one option: Buy and learn a second complex program that used Pro Tools hardware—all for the sole purpose of recording and editing MIDI tracks with audio tracks.

Fortunately, Pro Tools 5 changed that by integrating a solid sequencer into the familiar Pro Tools interface. This chapter will help you learn how to record MIDI into Pro Tools. I’ll show you how to set up MIDI interfaces and devices so Pro Tools can use them, and how to select inputs and output for MIDI tracks. Next, you’ll learn how to record single and multiple MIDI tracks into Pro Tools, and how to punch-record MIDI. We’ll also cover two types of loop-recording, as well as how to import and export MIDI files to interface with other programs.
